Are You an Introvert?
I am what I like to call a "closeted introvert". I use that term because most people, if asked about me, would never describe me as someone who is shy or withdrawn. I am very personable, and every job I have ever held has been one with large amounts of people interaction. Truthfully though, people wear me out. Social activities, especially if they are not among close friends and require copious amounts of small talk, are exhausting. I read the article entitled "Caring for Your Introvert" quite some time ago so when Lars stumbled upon it the other day, I felt the need to share it. If you're an closeted introvert like me, know that you're not alone, and if you're a proud extrovert, hopefully reading it will give you a bit more insight into your introverted friends and families. Remember, be kind to the introverts in your life. :)
